A few weeks back, we ran a poll asking how many guaranteed years Josh Hamilton would get on his next contract. The consensus was five years.
Now, I'm going to ask part two of that question...how much money, per year, do you think Josh Hamilton will get, guaranteed, in his next contract?
This is based on Average Annual Value. If he signs a three year contract, with $20 million in 2013, $25 million in 2014, and $30 million in 2015, the AAV is $25 million.
Don't count performance bonuses, team options, etc. -- just the guaranteed average amount per year. If there's a 3 year contract at $25 million per year, with a fourth year team option at $30 million with a $3 million buyout, and $2 million per year in incentive bonuses, the AAV is $26 million (since there is $78 million over 3 years guaranteed).
